This vintage hardcover book is re-envisioned as a blank book that is ideal for use as a journal or notebook.

The original book is “Beware of Parents: A Bachelor's Book for Children" by George Jean Nathan, 1943. The first 12 pages are the beginning of the original book with some fabulous pen and ink illustrations, and a photo of the author as an infant in full bonnet and fancy garb. The rest of the journal is made of blank premium recycled white pages.

Careful attention is paid to preserve the character of the original book while creatively altering it for new life and new use.

Approx. 200 pages (front and back)
Dimensions: 8.5" x 6"

Each item is lovingly handbound by Jeanne Firth in New Orleans, LA, USA. 5% of all profits are donated to local non-profit organizations doing good work for the community.
